In a dress rehearsal for the rendezvous between NASA's Deep Impact spacecraft and comet 9P/Tempel 1, the Hubble Space Telescope captured dramatic images of a new jet of dust streaming from the icy comet.
NASA has announced that a mission to fly to Jupiter will proceed to a preliminary design phase. The mission is called Juno, and it is the second in NASA's New Frontiers Program. The mission will conduct an in-depth study of the giant planet
Computers just respond to commands, never “thinking” about the consequences. A new software language, however, promises to enable computers to reason much more precisely and thus better reflect subtleties intended by commands of human operators.
A new form of water has been discovered by physicists in Argonne's Intense Pulsed Neutron Source (IPNS) Division. Called nanotube water, these molecules contain two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom but do not turn into ice even at temperatures near absolute zero…
VECPAR'06 is a multidisciplinary meeting on High Performance Computing for Computational Science. The conference is the opportunity for gathering of an enlarged scientific community made up of mathematicians, physicists, engineers, i.e.
HiPC is an international meeting on high performance computing. It serves as a forum to present current work by researchers from around the world as well as highlight activities in Asia in the high performance computing area.
Highlights will include the release of long-awaited documents describing grid architecture and the grid standards landscape. Technology innovators will discuss future trends in grids and new applications of grid computing in commercial sectors and scientific disciplines. http://www.ggf.
The 96-node DS-96 deskside cluster workstation is a personal supercomputer that fits under a desk and can be plugged into a standard power outlet. Designed for an office or laboratory serving individual engineers and scientists, these workstations are stackable
Commodity clusters provide convenient and cost-effective platforms for executing complex computation-, data-, and/or transaction-oriented applications.
SC|05, the premier international conference on high performance computing, networking and storage, will convene in November 2005 in Seattle.
The SX-8 is a vector supercomputer with a peak processing performance of 65 TFLOPS. The single-node model (includes up to eight CPUs) achieves a peak vector performance of 128 GFLOPS, while the multi-node model reaches a peak performance of 65 TFLOPS
The X1E supercomputer nearly triples the peak performance of its predecessor, the X1, boosting the peak processing power available in one cabinet from 0.819 teraflops to 2.3 teraflops, while maintaining the same cabinet size
The World Congress in Applied Computing is an annual research gathering. The main goal of this event is to provide a forum for exchange of ideas in a number of fields that interact.
Participate in LinuxWorld's conference program and learn how Linux is being implemented in your industry. From the industry’s thought leaders, gain the technical and enterprise know-how by hearing real life stories of execution and implementation.
iGrid 2005 is a coordinated effort to accelerate the use of existing multi-10 Gbps international and national networks, to advance scientific research, and to educate decision makers, academicians and industry researchers on the benefits of these hybrid networks.
